Funnel Cake

Funnel Cake

1 egg
2/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 1/3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
Vegetable oil (for deep frying)
1/4 cup confectioners` sugar for dusting

Beat egg in a mixing bowl. Stir in the milk. Sift flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder together and beat into the egg mixture until smooth. Pour oil into a heavy pan or skillet until it is 1-inch deep. Heat to 375 F.

Holding the funnel with one finger keeping the opening closed, fill with batter. Open the end of the funnel and allow batter to run out in a stream into the hot fat. Move funnel from center, swirling outward in a circular pattern. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown; using tongs turn over to brown the other side. Cook to golden brown, and remove to drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with confectioner`s sugar while still warm. Yield: 4 cakes. Tip: Top with apples, boysenberry syrup or other kind of fruit topping.
